3 Star TE Michael Neal is a Husky

The Dawgs add a pass catching tight end into the mix.

Height: 6'4''

Weight: 225

Rankings: 3* #56 TE by Scout, 3* #35 TE by 247

Neal was among the earlier players to commit to UW's 2015 class. He fits the mold of what we saw from the TE position at UW is 2014 -- post Austin Seferian-Jenkins: a tight end that moves well in space as a pass catcher and is more of a big wideout than what you think of as an old-school tight end. That style suits well what the Huskies are attempting to do on offense with their (mostly) spread attack.

With both Joshua Perkins and Darrell Daniels coming back as experienced upperclassmen, as well as solid depth bodies in David Ajamu and Drew Sample, it is unlikely that Neal sees the field as a regular on offense for at least a couple of season.

You can see from his senior year highlights that he looks to be pretty natural catching the ball, and has no problem leaving his feet to bring the ball down.
